Outlook 2003 as a client for Novell Groupwise?

Posted on 2004-11-11

The question is simple.  Can I use Outlook 2003 as a client for Novell Groupwise, and if so - how do I configure it?

At present if I try to open Outlook 2003 it will just keep crashing and restarting unless I set up a different profile with completley different settings to the Novell Transport Provider.

Any help would be great.

    Update - i've got it to work... at least it will let me get into Outlook and I can see all of my messages.  I can also recieve messages, however when I try to send anything I get a 'Could Not Complete the operation, one or more parameters are not valid' error message.

    Any ideas?

    Yes, you CAN use LookOut! as a GroupWise client, altho you sacrifice some functionality. You also make yourself vulnerable to whatever malware slips past your A/V or anti-spam defenses.

    There is a GroupWise Plug-In for LookOut!. See Novell TID #10014457 ( You can get the Plug-In from this link ( but I note that the docs state it only goes as far as LookOut! 2K. I don't see support for 2K3.

    LookOut! can also be configured ass an IMAP client for GroupWise, assuming you have a modern GroupWise version (you haven't bothered to state what VERSION of GroupWise you have, so I'll assume the latest, v6.5). Modern GroupWise versions support CAP (Calendar Access Protocol) as well.
